Bayer CropScience Provides a Glimpse of SeedGrowth™ Innovation
Date:12/5/2012

Research Triangle Park, NC (PRWEB) December 05, 2012

Soybean growers in the Midwest continue to struggle with sudden death syndrome (SDS), which was discovered in 1971. According to the Plant Heatlh Initiative, SDS is now considered one of the top four yield-robbing diseases in soybean and appears to be spreading. The disease is capable of devastating soybean fields, affecting some growers’ entire soybean crops and significantly reducing their yield even up to 90 percent in some years.

Bayer CropScience SeedGrowth™ (formerly Seed Treatment) is studying a product it believes will combat SDS and give growers a much-needed solution to this problem. This new product is a seed treatment that is applied directly to soybean seed and helps to control the Fusarium fungus that causes SDS.

“Sudden death syndrome often doesn’t show symptoms in the soybeans until it is too late for the grower to help their crop,” said Ethan Luth, SeedGrowth product manager at Bayer CropScience, “We know growers are frustrated with SDS, and until now, there hasn’t been a complete solution. However, trials of our new product are showing promising results, and we believe it will help growers to prevent losses from SDS.”

The fungal pathogen that causes SDS favors cool, moist growing conditions for infection. During soybeans’ early development stages, the infection invades the root system, but there are no visible symptoms until after flowering, at which time there are no known treatment options. The fungal infection suddenly becomes obvious as leaves display intervenial yellowing and necrosis, resulting in leaf drop during the critical stage of pod filling and effecting yield potential.

“When managing Sudden Death Syndrome, it is important to utilize an
